Prism City Farm Project is primarily an alternative education project catering for disaffected young people aged 12-21. The project works closely with schools in Bradford who refer students when mainstream education is not working well for them. The young people get the opportunity to manage the day-to-day running and development of an inner city farm and work towards OCR and NVQ qualifications in Animal Care and Horticulture but also cover key and life skills programmes.
